Yogi was famous for playing one game for Sunderland before getting a career ending injury. Typical of our lot. If we got Ronaldo to come and play for us he’d get shot by a jealous boyfriend before kicking a ball!

My brother lives in Airdrie. Drove past their ground once and in a few minutes drove past another ground.
Who’s is that then?
Albion Rovers
No the wonder attendance is so low in Scotland when every other village has a team.

Dunno what happened to the talent pool north of the border. They reckon Celtic’s European Cup team was composed entirely of lads from within about 20 miles of Glasgow, and then there was Malone, Kerr, Hughes, Porterfield (RIP) ...

Anyway those trainers look decent but not sure about the colour.


Ah originally hail (hail) fae Falkirk which has three teams - Falkirk, Stenhousemuir n' East Stirlingshire tho' The Shire huv dropped intae the Lowland League these past couple ay years.  Alloa n' Stirling Albion barely a stone's throw awa'.  Junior teams in Camelon n' Bo'ness n'aw.

Biggest support in the area is Ibrox fixated but a lot ay local Celtic buses travel through tae Parkheid n'aw.

When ah still lived up there ah used tae watch a local team when ah couldnae get tae a Celtic game - or if thir wis a local match oan when Celtic wurnae playin'.  No unheard ay fur me tae attend three games in the same week at that time.

Coatbridge is a Celtic toon but likewise some ay them bhoys will go watch the Rovers if it doesnae clash.

As fur the Sunderland players mentioned - Billy Hughes wis the wee brother ay John "Yogi" Hughes wha' played fur Celtic in the European Cup winnin' campaign altho' he didnae make the team fur the final itsel'.

Ah ken wur aff topic here but. .

I think the fact that there is a Celtic and Sevco element in most of the big towns goes back to just after the war when the Glasgow overspill kicked in and many of the Glasgow folk were spread far and wide . .
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .
I wont be pushed, filed , stamped , indexed , briefed , debriefed OR NUMBERED!
